TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa woman who was in a car accident was the victim of a crime just minutes later. A not-so-Good Samaritan stopped to help her, but he ended up helping himself.

Several people stopped to help a woman after a car accident Thursday afternoon, but one of them ended up stealing her wallet and going on a spending spree.

Ron Donaldson is angry a thief took advantage of a vulnerable moment for his wife, right after a car accident.

"I don't even want to call him a person," he said. "He actually put his hands on my wife and walked her from the car, to sit her down and steal from her."

The accident happened at 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon, at 26th and Yale. The two cars ended up in a yard on the east side of the road, and Lisa Donaldson was hurt. She had to go to the hospital in an ambulance.

The first responders couldn't find her driver's license, because someone had already stolen her wallet.

Bobby and Arleta Paul live across Yale, and say they thought they saw something suspicious.

"This guy, he helped her get in the chair, he went back to her car, then he boogied," Bobby said.

They believe that's when the wallet was stolen.

"Everything flies, her purse probably went into the floorboard, and that's where he was down, rummaging around," Arleta said.

The street is busy and the man left the other way, so they didn't catch the tag number on the bright gold, mid-size car.

While the accident was still being cleaned up, the thief was going shopping at Walmart, Atwoods, and Quik Trip.

"Someone has been going all over Broken Arrow and to surrounding areas, and they completely maxed out her debit cards," Donaldson said.

The bank shut off the cards, but her checkbook and work ID and more are still out there.

Donaldson is hoping the police can find the thief on store surveillance video.

"I'd like to see this guy's face blasted all over the TV, and get this guy taken off the streets," he said.

The witnesses say it was a bright gold mid-size car; the man appeared to be in his 50s, with some gray hair. They say he was skinny and wearing dark clothing, possibly a uniform.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers to pass the information along to police.
